Tragedy! King Leonidas dies in combat on the outskirts of Lodz! Leonidas the younger, fighting in the forests between Cumae and Tegea, takes the reigns of both the Spartan government and military and quickly makes peace with Rome.
He knows full well Cumae could have been taken if only his father hadn’t been so rash. And if only that flower had not so moved him... He explains this temporary peace to the Oligarchs as a way to ensure a greater victory against more important foes. But in his heart, he knows the truth.
Leonidas the younger orders all copies of How to Win Wars Good burnt.
Of Note: British triremes out of London raid Cologne!
